Healing flows through my body when I take a night out to do things I enjoy.
Relaxation is important to my well-being. I take a night off each month to do something I enjoy because I know this leads to greater health and productivity. When I work, I do so with all my heart, and when I relax, I allow myself to be equally present and engaged with the activity at hand.
Sometimes I choose to watch a movie with friends. Sometimes I relish a hike through the woods. Other times, I simply prefer to stay home, curled up with a book.
Whatever I choose to do, taking time for myself renews my energy. When I go back to my routine tasks, I find myself more focused and productive, with a better perspective on the stressors in my life.
I am better able to deal with challenges that come up in my daily life when I have time set aside for relaxation. I am unapologetic about taking this time out because I know relaxation makes me a better person, more competent and better able to meet the needs of those around me when I return.
It doesn’t matter what others tell me is a good use of my relaxation time. The point is that I, myself, thoroughly enjoy whatever I am doing and I engage in my own personal relaxation wholeheartedly, without guilt.
